This slow~uick-quick-slow scenario, with its gradual beginning explosive growth eventual slowing down and stabilizing, is represented on a graph as an 'S-curve', an upward swing in the shape of a letter S. It underlies many world happenings, such as tides rising and falling. As a tide runs out, at first just a few gallons of water seep out. Then the vast majority of water surges seaward. Then the remaining few gallons eddy out slowly (see Fig. 3). 3 S-curve For the language blaze to take hold, the foundations must have been laid, but probably not fully exploited.

Speciation due to geographical separation is known as allopatric speciation, and is usually claimed to be the most common mode of speciation. Sympatric speciation, without geographical isolation, is rarer. Once evolved, language could have swept through the hominid world like a bush fire. [10] Inspired selection There's one final question. How did humans hit on something as bizarre as language, a type of communication that has more in common with birdsong than with the grunts of other primates (chapter 1)?

An animal which selects to give birth to live animals, could not go back to producing eggs, just as a tree which started to drop its leaves could not go back to keeping them all the year round. Once humans came down from the trees and started walking and talking, they were obliged to continue. But just how did humans happen to have available the basic abilities which allowed them to choose language as an option? This will be the topic of the next chapter. Notes [1] For a brief summary of the arguments surrounding this and other early hominids, see Wavell 1995.
